“The Democrat bill won't stimulate anything but more government and more debt”
Now that tax-and-spend President George W. Bush has finally retired to Crawford Texas, the remaining Republicans in Washington appear to (maybe, sort of) have gotten the message and intend to oppose the massive spending bill proposed by the Democrats on Capitol Hill. Here’s Chairman of the Republican Conference, Representative Mike Pence of Indiana:
"The Democrat bill won't stimulate anything but more government and more debt. The slow and wasteful spending in the House Democrat bill is a disservice to millions of Americans who want to see this Congress take immediate action to get this economy moving again."Maybe the massive defeats suffered by Republicans in 2006 and 2008 caused their testicles finally to drop and generate some testosterone. We can only hope.
